Back when I was younger I remember walking past a shop in my hometown called Games Workshop. Peeking in through the large window was a shop filled with detailed models, paints and a large battlefield on a table in the centre. It wasn’t until I got a little older that I started to buy and get into the actual game of Warhammer 40K. Most of my friends who got into the game found the most fun in painting and collecting their armies, but for me, I always wanted to play skirmishes (mainly as my painting skills were pretty bad and still are).
After a year or two most grew tired of painting and went on to other hobbies, but I still kept growing my army in anticipation of one day having some large scale battles. But alas, that time never came and much like my friends I moved onto newer hobbies. I always wanted to play but trying to get someone into buying, building and learning the rules meant the entry point was too high for most of my friends who had either little interest or little patience.
Flash forward 20 odd years and after a random conversation with some buddies about new developments in Warhammer and it seems there’s now a much more approachable and user-friendly version of the game that’s been released. I know next to nothing about this new game, but the folks over at gamecows.com have written up an excellent guide to get you started.
So thanks to the team over at gamecows.com for information and tips that could help you get started on what looks like what i’ve always wanted from Warhammer.
You can find the guide here.
